Kasey by Jennifer Hanks

Introducing an exciting new series filled with suspense, sacrifice, family, and most of all, the healing power of love. Welcome to the Family…


One. Defining. Moment.

Kasey Moore is happy to be home. Moving to New Hope as a teenager hadn’t been easy, but once she settled in, she couldn’t imagine herself living anywhere else. After four years in College, she’s finally back to living in the town she loves and working her dream job as a teacher at the Elementary School.

For Kasey, her life couldn’t be more perfect.

Until a school assembly, an arrogant man, and a hot encounter in a closet shakes up everything Kasey thinks she wants.
Ten years as a Navy SEAL and Jackson Dimarco is coming home. 

Ten years of rigid schedules, almost unreachable expectations, and being a part of something bigger than himself has changed him. Coming home, trying to find himself, the last thing Jax wants to do is talk to an auditorium full of school kids about his time in the military, but when his brother signs him up that’s exactly what he ends up doing.

And he meets someone who challenges him in a way nobody has in a very long time. He meets someone who inspires him to become more than who he’s settled for. He meets someone who makes him feel alive again.

It’s just a shame she doesn’t feel the same way.

But Jackson Dimarco has always loved a challenge and Kasey Moore is the biggest incentive he’s ever had to win.

This is a novella in The Dimarco Series. Can be read as a standalone and at any point in the series. However, if new to the series, I’d recommend reading this novella before the first book in the series, Lucy.

I have loved the Dimarcos for quite some time, but this book is exactly what was missing.  The story of where it all began. A glimpse into who they were before. The story of Jax and Kasey.  Fans of the series, will absolutely love this glimpse into the past, and new fans now have the perfect place to start.

Jax and Kasey are perfect!  I absolutely loved watching Kasey in all her sassy glory make Jax work for what he wanted.  She is strong, independent, and funny. She is the perfect balance to Jax and his bossy, grumpy self.  They are truly one of those couples that make each other better. When Jax came home from war, he needed to find home again, and that’s exactly what Kasey became.  Even if she didn’t come easy…or maybe because she didn’t come easy.

This book will melt your Kindle.  Jax and Kasey have so much chemistry.  That kind of spark couldn’t be contained forever, and once it exploded, it was so HOT!  However, I love that the extreme heat was balanced with sweet, swoony moments.

While I’m not normally drawn to novellas, this is an amazing prequel.  The characters and story are well developed, but you are left longing for more of this family.  Luckily there is already more waiting!
